As if it wasnt enough that we are having very unfriendly cycling weather I am now two days into a stinking cold, which as I calculate from my late mothers formula I have another 4 days to endure.
She always said that a cold is three days coming, three days with you and three days going. So, I guess I have completed part one and I am now two-thirds of the way into part two!
I had managed to resist the cold that was going around for quite a while and but for the enforced cycling lay-off I might have got away with.
I remember when I was younger and out cycling all the time, recreationally and to and from work I just never got a cold. Sundays ride was a belated attempt to stave off the symptoms but it seems it was too little, too late.. 😦
